*update* July 1, 2015 ABC News: Homeless Man Who Returned Found Money Donates Reward A homeless man who made headline and defied stereotypes when he walked into a police station to return thousands in cash he had found continues to amaze. He has now donated the thousands of dollars raised for him by people who were moved by his initial act to a homeless shelter. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the homeless man was tracked down by Constable Alex Bérubé of the West Shore RCMP. “After hearing this story and seeing how this case touched so many people, I took a personal interest in finding this man, looking for him everywhere while on and off shift. It's not easy tracking down a person of no fixed address and no phone, but I kept trying because I needed to tell him about how the community had rallied together to help him,” said Bérubé.

Other travelers told 7News they were planning on booking hotels and flying out Sunday. Lisa Grant, whose flight to Baltimore was canceled, said she was giving up on flying this weekend.

Is it nonsense or common sense?
Overweight means carrying useless fat, making each move or step unpleasantly heavy.
It is and so true that waistline is life line: fat around belly and waist is literality sitting and pressing and damaging liver and kidneys.
Here is a true person’s 100-day drastic expedition, and he has brought about a miracle, admirable (!) -

‘If you got down to 230, you probably wouldn’t need any of the meds.’

Be tall to be there: Boston covered by 6-feet snow; 60000 tons of salt dumped onto roads; NY, Vermont help dig Massachusetts out
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans: "I hope it snows every day!" Homicides and other major crimes in the city have dropped by a whopping 34 percent so far this year, compared with the same period last year. Vehicle theft decreased by 46 percent, larceny by 35 percent, and burglaries by 32 percent, according to data provided by the Boston Police Department.

The record was broken midnight Thursday. It was the 11th full day without a reported homicide. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton hushed talk of the streak Friday on "CBS This Morning." "Shh ... we don't want to jinx it," Bratton told host Charlie Rose. "We're into our 12th day now, Charlie. Eleven is a record and let's keep it going."

Oceans with fish aplenty or barren sea without fish? Fracking involves using a high-pressure water mixture to penetrate rock in order to release gas. Can gas be replaced by solar energy? Can there be life without water (already short)?

Millions of GMO mosquitoes to be released in the Florida Keys if FDA allows experiment. Nightmare? At least 130,000 frightened
Dummy's simplest questions:
1. Can such kind of "experiment" be undone if consequences run wildly away from Florida Keys?
2. Will millions of flying mosquitoes "obey Lab's rules" to stay where they are released?
3. Mosquitoes, by nature, bite. How to guarantee the released males from mating with poisonous "super powerful" female mosquitoes (some spread deadly disease) whose offspring will survive?
Millions of GMO Insects Could Be Released in Florida Keys
Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood.
Dengue and chikungunya are growing threats in the U.S., but some people are more frightened at the thought of being bitten by a genetically modified organism. More than 130,000 people signed a Change.org petition against the experiment.
genetically modified mosquitoes could have unintended consequences
Already, the Times reports, "3.5% of the insects in a lab test survived to adulthood despite presumably carrying the lethal gene."
